With the arrival of summer, the houses become a main refuge during the central hours of the day. To withstand the suffocating heat, every year we change the wardrobe, we replace the duvet and flannel sheets with fresher and lighter bedding and, while we fine-tune our garden, we must change the decoration of the main rooms interiors. Does anyone want to step on a shag rug on their way back from the pool?
Getting a house where the light expands during the morning and where the coolness prevails at siesta time is possible. With a few simple decoration tricks, you will be able to lower the temperature of your home a few degrees and achieve a style according to the summer season.
To build a fresh atmosphere in any room of the house, it is best to use vegetable fibers. The esparto grass or bamboo rugs, the wicker trunks and lamps or the teak chairs are functional and cozy elements that will help you better withstand the heat.
Summer is the best time to take care of your plants, also indoors. In vases on the floor or hung from the top of the furniture, plants will give a natural touch to your living room, lighten the spaces and purify the air during this season.
The heavy and opaque curtains of winter no longer hit anything in your dining room. Replace them with curtain-type ones that let the air flow when you ventilate the house, or with light-colored blinds that allow you to easily raise or lower them depending on the light and heat of each moment.
The day to day of summer invites you to create more informal environments. Cotton or linen tablecloths and white tableware will be the stars of your summer celebrations. Sailor or country motifs can also work very well. Complete the decoration of your dining room with a small vase of flowers or a scented candle and you will have everything for a perfect evening.
White tones are synonymous with freshness and greater spaciousness in spaces. The furniture and upholstery in beige or white will really help you gain comfort. Perhaps it is a good time to change the covers of the cushions and sofas or to restore that shelf in your living room with the white lacquer technique.
